While I’m mostly just kidding, now’s the time to learn all about Jackie. Here are only some moments throughout Jackie Aina’s career that show just how impactful and informative she is.


Jackie Aina is a Nigerian-American beauty influencer from Los Angeles — she started on YouTube back in 2008 and has been THEEEE beauty influencer on the platform for well over 10 amazing years.


Throughout the years, Jackie has proven to be a reliable and relatable beauty influencer and she’s always advocating for inclusivity within the beauty and fashion community.

It’s a foundation that I swear by to this very day, so if you haven’t tried it, please do!


And if it couldn’t get better, in 2019, Aina released a palette in collaboration with makeup brand Anastasia Beverly Hills.


In 2018, she won the NAACP Image Award for YouTuber of the Year.


Aina has also used her platform to speak out and bring awareness to the #EndSars movement, which is short for Special Anti-Robbery Squad.


Apart from being an advocate, Jackie has also been known to give advice for some life topics, one most recently titled “How To Spot FRENEMIES”

In the video she states, “I think that if more of us admitted our own toxic traits and became a little more self-aware and truthful you know, about where our feelings really come from we’d have a lot less conflict in the world, we really would.”


In 2020, she released her brand titled FORVR MOOD where you can shop for candles, pillowcases, headbands and candle care!


Around the same time of her FORVR MOOD launch, she also created a new Instagram page dedicated to all things lavish named @lavishlyjackie.

On her newest page, you can find all kinds of videos surrounding her favorite perfumes, shoes and tips on how to feel refreshed with your clothing during quarantine!


And if that’s not enough, she has a great sense of humor that she displays during various videos found on her Instagram, Twitter and YouTube channel.
